This place has very good food...I tried their carne asada fries and they were really good! Their carne asada is different from all the 50+ plus taco shops I've eaten at! Its very good, its almost like little pieces of fine steak! They prices are very reasonable unlike most taco shops. The place is very clean always and their friendly service makes you want to go back often! Great taco shop, great food!

The best REAL Mexican food this side of "la Linea". Huge portions, quick service, friendly staff- treat you just like family, all for a VERY reasonable price. Clean too, which is sometimes a rare trait in other taco shops? Last, but not least, the windows of the restaurant are beautifully painted with various seasonal art- it makes you feel like you're eating in a museum or something (a museum with BOMB California Burritos and Horchata of the perfect consistency!!) Did I mention I'm born and raised in San Diego (that means A Lot of taco shops in my days...) and California's Taco Shop is MY FAVORITE, HANDS DOWN!!

I really liked this taco shop! It has to be in the top three that I've found so far. Me and my husband ordered two California burritos, Carne Asada fries, and a kids meal for our daughter (bean and cheese burrito, fries and a Capri Sun) The food was very good but it was CHEAPER :)!!! Most places charge you around 6 dollars for a Cali burrito but they were only 4.95 here. Oh and one of the best parts about this place???? It was every clean! When you order you can see the kitchen and see that it's clean. I really like this place and I'm for sure going back!

I went in for the "Big Mama" Challenge, when I was faced with a 4 pounds of deliciousness. I got down to half of the beast, but I couldn't continue, not because if was gross, but because I was stuffed. I wanted to keep eating, but I was defeated. I came back the following week and they introduced the Surfer Fries, which is Carne asada fries, with an added amount of succulent grilled shrimp. I highly recommend this place.

I was recently there for Taco Tuesday and we really liked the flavor of the food! The prices were low, a great deal for dinner for the whole family. Also, I loved the fact that the place was spotless! I will definitely be back for more.
